Beth Galton
Still Life of White Eggplants and Olive Oil

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


"I am a professional food and still life photographer with over 30 years experience based in New York City. My attention to detail and strong sense of composition has allowed me to acquire a noteworthy client list in the advertising, editorial and publishing world. I came to the photographic world through my passion for artists such as Edward Weston, Paul Strand, and Aaron Siskind. My commercial work has taught me the craft of photography and with this knowledge I have continued to produce my own personal projects outside of the commercial world. My work has had gallery representation in New York and Boston, as well as having been exhibited in museums and group shows in both America and Europe.

When working on my personal projects, I find myself gravitating to organic forms and capturing their nuanced beauty. My work investigates light, shape, and time through these organic forms. I carefully select and study my subjects and then wait. In this months-long waiting process, the aging subjects morph into new sculptural forms that I then document with a singularity. The resulting photographs become portraits of inanimate objects infused with life, portraits that instill empathy in the viewer."
